Charles Oliveira is considered the best lightweight in UFC right now. But, can he be called the the lightweight GOAT?
Though Oliveira's recent win streak looks impressive Khabib Nurmagomedov's legacy can not be overlooked.
However, there are many fans including Sean O'Malley believe Oliveira could have been the one to end the unbeaten streak of Khabib.
In his recent podcast, Sean O'Malley even suggested that chances are Khabib Nurmagomedov ducked a fight against Oliveria and retired from the sport.
“That’s the one interesting fight that I would like to see if Khabib came back in the division. It would be Charles. Everyone else I think Khabib kind of mauls. I think Charles is the only one that can really give Khabib problems and, who knows, maybe that’s why Khabib stepped away.
Maybe he saw, ‘I don’t want that guy.’ Who knows, but yeah, that’s one fight that I would be interested in seeing Khabib come back for. It would be a massive fight.”- Sean O'Malley
The fight between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev will certainly solve the mystery of how a fight between Oliveria and Khabib would have played out.
